Photo Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Tag Force Special HD Cards Texture Pack
Texture pack for Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Tag Force Special

Specific game version required (may not work on other versions):
NPJH00142 Special UTIMATE ISO v2.1 by FLS Gaming Projects

v1.1 English Base Texturepack (Full size, uncompressed PNG-24 images)

v1.1 English Base Texturepack (Lossy PNG-8 compression for smaller filesize. Almost unnoticeable from HQ. Recommended if HQ lags/stutters)

Portuguese Lard Card images Add-on pack (replace folder in above download)
Can be used with Juninfs' Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Tag Force Special PT-BR translation

Screenshot Comparison

Added better card type frames (thanks GDO-KV2)
Improved quality of Anime/TCG sleeve images
Improved quality of monster type and card icons
Fixed a few blurry small card images and duplicates
Added 4X upscaled textures (ESRGANN) for:
- all character portraits
- field zones and card highlighters
- duel phase bar
- card attack/def/level numbers
- bar at top showing LP during duels
- Various text, including menu options and turn phase text
- story mode arc selection backgrounds
- card category icons
- duel actions icons (set card, summon, activate, etc.)
- custom turn phase selection texture
- special summon, xyz summon, chain effect textures

- Initial release

Some TCG artwork was used instead of OCG artwork, to have cards with English text in the card images.

Large Card images are generated from other Tag Force ISOs, which were extracted using CIPTool and GimConv. Some images were sourced from Yugipedia or upscaled with Waifu2x if no decent quality artwork images were available from the Tag Force games.

Album sized card anime card images from YGOPRO. About ~300 anime/game exclusive cards, or cards that didn't have a passcode, were created with Anime Yu-Gi-Oh Card Maker.

  1. Place all files in C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\Documents\PPSSPP\PSP\TEXTURES\NPJH00142\
  2. Activate Texture replacements in PPSSPP settings:
    Game Settings > Tools > Developer Tools > Replace textures

Known Issues / Missing Textures
  • Cards with special symbols like ☆ don't display correctly. I will fix this later in v1.2
  • Cards use English name from Yugipedia. Some card names from the translated ISO use similar but incorrect names for some cards.
  • Token cards. There were about 100 and it could not be automated due to missing info on Yugipedia.
  • Card rarity info hasn't been added to Yugipedia, so I was unable to scrape it to make text colored in the large card images.
  • Large card images sometimes contain random garbage data in the bottom right corner which leads to the game using random texture hashes. Occasionally you will see a card that momentarily shows it's old texture. If you know a way to resolve this without using quickHash (breaks text rendering), please let me know.
Future Possible Updates
  • Scraping card rarity and coloring the text in images accordingly
  • Add option for TCG card textures for small card images instead of anime-styled
